David Oscarson Les Quatre Couleurs Limited Edition Roller Ball
David Oscarson brings you its seventeenth Limited Edition writing instruments with the Les Quatre Couleurs Limited Edition Roller Ball. This quality roller ball pen is produced in four colors variation, each limited to production of 88 pieces, including fountain pens and roller ball styles. Les Quatre Couleurs translated means The Four Colors or The Four Suits.
Origins of playing cards can be traced as far back as the 7th century from China, India and Persia but the more simplified French design became the standard for most of Europe. The four suits now used in most of the world are Spades representing nobility or aristocracy; Diamonds represent wealth, Hearts represent clergy or the church and Clubs represent peasantry with the reference to clover, the food of swine.
Les Quatre Couleurs, with its double meaning is an appropriate play on words as the four suited collection will be available in four color variations, each portraying all four suits on the cap and barrel. This beautifully crafted masterpiece incorporates multiple levels of Guilloche engraving and translucent and opaque hard enamel along with decorative filigree motif in high relief.
